Yes, for example:

Biostar M6TBA

coreboot support and flashrom support are not necessarily related. I
have various boards (e.g. some of the above) which I can support in coreboot,
but haven't yet found the time or energy to figure out a write-enable
for flashrom (as I have other boards which work where I can program the
flash chips).
